NAME

Location::GeoTool - Perl extension for Geometry processing

SYNOPSIS

  use Location::GeoTool;
  
  # New constructor (Options can be set)
  my $oGeo = Location::GeoTool->new({changeMyself => 0,enableWantarray => 0});
  $oGeo->set_coord('35.39.24.491','139.40.10.478','tokyo','gpsone');

  # Old constructor
  my $oGeo = Location::GeoTool->create_coord('35.39.24.491','139.40.10.478','tokyo','gpsone');

  my @mapion = $oGeo->format_mapion->array;
   # => ("35/39/24.491","139/40/10.478")
  my $oGeoW = $oGeo->datum_wgs84;
  my @wgs84 = ($oGeoW->lat,$oGeoW->long);
   # => ("35.39.36.145","139.39.58.871")
  my @degree_wgs84 = $oGeoW->format_second;
   # => (128376.14524...,502798.87076...)

DESCRIPTION

Constructor

new

  my $obj = Location::GeoTool->new($option_hashref);

Creates Location::GeoTool object. With this constructor, you can set some options.

enableWantarray

With this option is 1 (default 0), you can get coordinates array from "format_foo" or "datum_foo" type method in array context.

For example,

  # When enableWantarray = 0
  $obj_new = $obj->format_degree;           # object
  ($lat,$long) = $obj->format_degree;       # object,undef
  ($lat,$long) = $obj->format_degree->array;# latitude,longitude
  
  # When enableWantarray = 1
  $obj_new = $obj->format_degree;           # object
  ($lat,$long) = $obj->format_degree;       # latitude,longitude
  ($lat,$long) = $obj->format_degree->array;# latitude,longitude
changeMyself

With this option is 1 (default 0), "format_foo" or "datum_foo" type method won't make new object but change the original object itself.

For example,

  # When changeMyself = 0
  $obj_new = $obj->datum_tokyo;           
  # $obj_new != $obj 
  # $obj not change.
  
  # When changeMyself = 1
  $obj_new = $obj->datum_tokyo;
  # $obj_new == $obj 
  # $obj changes.

With new constructor, you can't set coordinates data. You must set them by using set_coord method.

create_coord

  my $obj = Location::GeoTool->create_coord($lat,$long,$datum,$format);

Creates Location::GeoTool object. This method can not only create object but set coordinates, but cannot set options.

  $lat    : Latitude
  $long   : Longitude
  $datum  : Datum
  $format : Format

Default datum and format of object are same with given to constructor. Give datum by string shown below:

  WGS84   : 'wgs84'
  TOKYO   : 'tokyo'

Give format by string shown below:

  MapionURL format (ddd/mm/ss.nnn) : 'mapion'
  gpsOne format    (ddd.mm.ss.nnn) : 'gpsone'
  SpaceTag format  (pddmmssnnn)    : 'spacetag'
  dddmmss.nnn·Á¼°                  : 'dmsn'
  Degree           (ddd.dddddd...) : 'degree'
  Second           (ssssss.sss...) : 'second'
  Radian                           : 'radian'

Methods for setting/changing latitude/longitude

set_coord

  $obj->set_coord($lat,$long,$datum,$format);

This method to be used when setting/changing object's cordinates data. Argument is same with create_coord.

Methods for setting/changing option

enableWantarray

changeMyself

  $obj->enableWantarray(1);
  $obj->changeMyself(1);

This method to be used when setting/changing object's option value. Option's meaning is same with new method's option.

Methods for getting latitude/longitude

array

lat

long

Return the latitude/longitude value of object.

  ($lat,$long) = $obj->array;
    or
  $lat = $obj->lat;
  $long = $obj->long;

Methods for changing datum/format

format_foo

datum_foo

Create a new object which has new datum/format setting. (With changeMyself option on, never create new object but change original object)

  $newobj = $obj->datum_wgs84;
  $newobj = $obj->format_mapion;
  ($lat,$long) = $obj->datum_tokyo->format_radian->array;

etc.

All methods belong to this category are shown below:

  Change to wgs84 datum      :  datum_wgs84
  Change to tokyo datum      :  datum_tokyo
  Change to MapionURL format :  format_mapion
  Change to gpsOne format    :  format_gpsone
  Change to SpaceTag format  :  format_spacetag
  Change to dddmmss.nnn      :  format_dmsn
  Change to degree           :  format_degree
  Change to second           :  format_second
  Change to radian           :  format_radian

Methods for create Location::GeoTool::Direction object

Create a object of Location::GeoTool::Direction, which is handling direction/distance data. Parent object is automatically set to Start-point of Location::GeoTool::Direction object.

  my $dirobj = $locobj->direction_point('40/36/14.307','141/01/33.022','tokyo','mapion');
  my ($dir,$dist) = ($dirobj->direction,$dirobj->distance);
    or
  my $direction = $locobj->direction_point($another_locobj)->direction;
    or
  my ($endlat,$endlong) = $locobj->direction_vector($dir,$dist)->to_point->array;

etc.

direction_point

Create Location::GeoTool::Direction object by giving End-point.

You can specify End-point by two-ways shown below:

  $locobj->direction_point($lat,$long,$datum,$format);
    or
  $locobj->direction_point($another_locobj);
      #$another_locobj is another Location::GeoTool object

direction_vector

Create Location::GeoTool::Direction object by giving direction and distance.

  $locobj->direction_point($direction,$distance);

Direction is given 0-360 degree, start from north, and east is positive. Unit of distance is [m].

Create Location::GeoTool::Direction object by giving End-point.

PLUGINS

If you want to use plugin of this module, you use this module as below:

  use Location::GeoTool qw/Locapoint GridLocator/;

By above, you can use Location::GeoTool::Plugin::Locapoint and Location::GeoTool::Plugin::GridLocator plugin.

These two plugins are combined with this distribution.
